- Management of nodes is simple and requires minimal maintenance.
- The ability to query is flexible and the N1QL language is convenient, though it can have pitfalls.
- Replication provides great data resiliency, as well as speed and performance on a global scale.
- At large query volume, it can be difficult to scale. This is mostly due to user error, but the flexibility afforded makes these issues easy to slip through.
- The N1QL language, while convenient, obscures powerful features and hinders in-depth learning of the NoSQL principles.
- Couchbase is self-hosted, and as such, it required internal DevOps resources to maintain.
The biggest issues that Couchbase solved for us were scaling and data elasticity. As our user base grew we knew we needed a system that could scale horizontally so that we had more predictable capital expenditures that could be planned for. We also wanted to be able to update data models without having to perform difficult schema definition changes or table alterations. Couchbase met both of these objectives.
- Single and multi-record lookups are extremely fast.
- N!QL lets SQL programmers get up and running quickly without having to learn a new way of thinking.
- Full-text search, still basic but becoming more useful.
- Management UI is awesome providing a useful dashboard for determining the health of your cluster.
- Rolling updates just work.
- Full text search is very basic and fairly limited throwing errors at times that are difficult to understand or resolve.
- .NET SDK has not always been compatible with the latest server version.
- This is a very flexible and efficient database that has high performance. As well as it is easy to deploy and manage.
- Couchbase consists of high scalability and reliability.
- The speed is very high, therefore, it can do faster developments by handling a large set of data.
- And security is another important quality included in this database.
- Less downtime.
- Couchbase has less community support.
- It can not be used without proper knowledge and practice, so new users have to learn first.
- Flexible database with high performance.
- Easy to manage: this has integrated database performance monitoring toolkit which was easy for database management
- High security for data with the latest encryption and data masking technologies used in the Couchbase database solution.
- Less downtime of the database, no major issues and incidents found so far.
- When integrating NoSQL databases with Android mobile applications a little bit tricky.
- Configuring a database cluster: This configuration part is a bit harder than the other database solutions.
- Reliability and security are high.
- Easy to deploy.
- GUI of the Couchbase is easy to understand.
- Has many various features.
- Has a good support service.
- Can stick with future business goals.
- Some features of Couchbase can be improved, like reporting and logs features.
- Easy to rapidly develop and manage applications
- High-performing database.; ability to serve a large set of transactions at the same time
- Adaptable for multiple types of apps such as web applications, mobile apps
- N1QL is easier than SQL.
- High availability and reliability
- Less community support
- Hard to learn at first
- Provides high performance. It can handle a large set of data.
- Easier to use than Mongo DB.
- High scalability and reliability.
- Ability to do faster development.
- Easy deployment and manageability.
- Needs better documentation.
- Low community support.
- Easy manageable solution for No SQL database
- Offers a one month trial and users can download and purchase after the trial
- Performance of the database is higher than other database
- This supports cloud integrations as well
- Security of the database is high and it uses the latest security technologies and encryption technologies to prevent data leakage.
- Annual subscription rate is high
- In initial data migration to cloud database there will be some lag
Great at caching & raw performance, earlier versions have some gotchas, newer versions look pretty good (no longer a Couchbase user)
Couchbase would make a fine caching layer and the potential for N1QL looks interesting. However as we were using older versions of the product the effort to migrate to newer libraries resulted in us ultimately migrating off Couchbase.
Couchbase is a great product covering different usage scenarios, both for Backoffice/Backend intensive operations and client-side DB. Couchbase as well offers good integration with encryption services, fulfilling our security and privacy requirements.
It is relatively easy to deploy without training but not intuitive enough to set it up with best practices without pretty good working knowledge of the DB and all its settings and terminology.
- Performance, it is way better than Mongo
- Ease of maintanence. Reduced factor in tryng to resolve issues.
- Scales easily and quickly.
- HA across DCs is really needed, which was provided.
- Reduction in pricing
- Slightly better documentation
- Allow community to submit/commit
- You can use Couchbase in numerous ways, such as key-value and document storage.
- Installation is easy and replication is very good.
- Very fast reads.
- Fail-over configuration is very easy to setup. There is too much documentation about this.
- Everything is working fine. We created 5 environments (DEV,QA,UAT,PRE-PROD,PROD).
- The user manual is not easy to understand. Almost all of the documentation is in English.
- You can only put text files that are JSON formatted. No XML support.
- It has a good customer support service that provides me immense solutions to my respective problems in just a few seconds.
- It ensures fast data access that is enough necessary for a good ongoing project.
- Every feature of this application is making my work more flexible and interesting with each passing day.
- For me there is nothing to worry about, and it only it has a little learning curve.
- It’s an easy and effective way to develop an application that is responsive enough to maintain the workload.
- It is the most convenient tool. I have never come across any problems yet.
- Performance of Couchbase is great
- The simplicity of using Couchbase is a major benefit with support for standards like JSON, and its handling of attachments makes it simple to adapt in web-based projects.
- If it had a smaller footprint that would make for easier deployment to multiple devices. This is especially true when compared to other solutions.
- More involvement in the open source community to promote out-of-the-box integration/support in popular frameworks.
- High throughput.
- Low latency.
- 0 downtime.
- Highly scalable.
- Data service is built for higher scale than the other services.
- Client SDK's are not at the same level of quality as the server.
- Analytics service is still not at the same level of quality and usefulness as the rest of the services.
- Testing and recommendations on cloud environment and not good enough.
Couchbase is less suited to smaller-scale systems as it is more complex to use and requires higher minimal resources than comparative solutions.
